Psychotherapy for Individuals
I want to create a relationship of trust and respect with my clients, in which the client can tell his/her story in a new way, in a way that relieves judgment and self-criticism, and frees up energy for creativity, for compassion, and for service.
Sitting in my office with individuals, I want to find out when they feel alive and engaged. So I ask them questions like:
- When do you experience joy?
- What kind of relationship brings you the most satisfaction?
- When do you feel powerful and creative?
Within this quest for well being,
it is important to find out from the
- How are you preventing yourself from feeling good?
- What habits of self-judgment could you change?
- What behaviors or addictions do you need to heal?
I work within a model of integrated health, and my clients set goals in the these important areas:
- Spiritual Health
- Mental Health
- Physical Health
Making positive changes towards health in any of these three areas makes us feel better about ourselves, and is a balm to feelings of self-judgment and deficiency.
I have been licensed as a psychotherapist for almost 20 years, and am certified to practice body-oriented psychotherapy and movement after intensive studies at the Hendricks Institute, founded by two nationally known innovators, Drs. Gay and Katie Hendricks.
